GS#32 - Life's Simple Pleasures

This card was made for the GS#32 sketch from the Get Sketchy blog. Time to make another fun flower. This time I left out the very middle piece of the rose and added stamens in the center. You can purchase tons of these for less than $2 in the wedding section at Hobby Lobby.
Do you see the beautiful gleam? The flower and sentiment are made with A Muse shimmer paper. So rich and gorgeous! I paired up the glamorous paper with my fun Offbeat Basic Grey 6x6 paperpad (Can you tell that I love this pad? I keep grabbing it - love all the papers in it!!) - cut out the circles with my Nestabilities.
I love how the same flower can take a totally different look with your choice of layout and patterned papers. Click for the flower tutorial.
Our dog saw a rabbit in the backyard today - rest assured the rabbit got away but Lily got SO muddy - Mud from her head to her feet plus her belly - the only part that wasn't muddy was the middle of her back! BLECH!!
